Experimental Cancer Regression by InsP<sub>6</sub> & Inositol

- Pp. 83-106 (24)

A.K.M. Shamsuddin and Guang-Yu Yang


Towards the eventual goal of translating the cancer inhibitory effect of inositol &amp; InsP&lt;sub&gt;6&lt;/sub&gt; seen in experimental animals in vivo to cancer prevention and therapy in humans, studies of human cancer cells lines were performed in vitro; and human cancer cells xenotransplanted in nude mice were used to test the therapeutic potential. A consistent and reproducible broad-spectrum anticancer action of InsP&lt;sub&gt;6&lt;/sub&gt; ± inositol was observed in various models; in human breast cancer model InsP&lt;sub&gt;6&lt;/sub&gt; showed synergism with standard chemotherapeutic agents Adriamycin or Tamoxifen. Suppression of cancer growth was seen in xenotransplanted rhabdomyosarcoma model and regression of preexisting cancer was seen in hepatoma model. InsP&lt;sub&gt;6&lt;/sub&gt; ± inositol also inhibited various steps in cancer metastasis, inositol potentiated the action. These findings are compelling reasons for application of InsP&lt;sub&gt;6&lt;/sub&gt;+inositol for human cancer control.
